Meghan Markle Had a Private Spa-Themed Bridal Shower in the English Countryside

Sound like a dream? You can book your own at the same place.

Meghan Markle is soaking up the final months of her American life before she officially becomes royalty in May (opens in new tab). Over the weekend, the 36-year-old celebrated her upcoming wedding (opens in new tab) to Prince Harry at a private spa-themed bridal shower with friends.

The low-key celebration reportedly took place (opens in new tab) about 55 miles outside of London at the Soho Farmhouse (opens in new tab), a member's club and hotel spanning 100 acres of Oxfordshire countryside with cabins, cottages, a spa, and steam and sauna islands. Yes, islands—a.k.a. a certified dream.

Markus Anderson (opens in new tab), who was reportedly (opens in new tab) one of the people who set up Markle and Harry on their first blind date (and her seatmate at the Invictus Games (opens in new tab)), organized the shower. The best part? If you're feeling like you missed out on the Markle pre-wedding festivities (same), you can book a spa day of your own below.
